The family is planning for Maggie's upcoming sweet sixteen party. Instead of having it at the Guggenheim like Maxwell wants, Maggie wants to have something a little more lively. Fran decides to hold the party at her Aunt Freida's discotheque in Queen's. Sylvia isn't too happy as she and Freida, who is Morty's sister, have been feuding forever. Although Maggie likes the idea of holding the party at Tante Freida's, Sylvia won't go or ever speak to Fran again if it's held there. Fran decides to bring her mother and her aunt together in the hope and supposition that neither actually remembers what started the feud. Fran ends up being right, and Sylvia and Freida kiss and make up. The party will go ahead at Tante Freida's with Sylvia's blessing. However at the party, Freida remembers what started the feud which causes the start of a food fight in the middle of the party. Because of it, Maggie and her friends think it's the best sweet sixteen party ever. Written by Huggo
